The festivities included a cocktail hour and silent auction in the museum’s elegant courtyard.  Guests enjoyed the sounds of Sambagrilo—a Brazilian jazz and bossa nova band that evoked the ambiance of Ipanema.  Brazilian-themed delicacies were served at dinner in the glass-walled dining room of the Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion and Bill Schutt conducted a live auction featuring items such as trips to Tuscany and Scotland, and tango lessons for six people followed by dinner.

This year’s “Special Pledge” benefited precision medicine research.  At Fox Chase, cancer specialists are able to use an individual’s unique DNA sequences to determine that person’s risk of cancer. They also use DNA sequencing to identify targeted treatments that can provide the best outcome for an individual patient.  You can read more about precision medicine research here.
